I’ve been quiet for a few days and regular readers may be wondering if everything’s OK.
Yes, it is, absolutely… I’ve just been obsessed with various DIY and home maintenance tasks recently! (I know, I need to get a life, right?!)
I’ve been getting huge enjoyment from sanding, filling, painting, varnishing and general tidying.
One of the mini-projects I’ve been working on is my home PC, AKA…
The Bollinger BattleStation™
Below the desk is still a work in progress – there’s some more cable tidying required. But overall I’m really proud of this so far. It used to be much messier!
I’ve been doing quite a few other projects too, but I’m not going to share any details or pictures here… my wife is away for the week and I want it to be a nice surprise for her when she gets back.
Send me into orbit
I’ve even bought myself a “random orbital sander”. I had no idea what one of those was until a few days ago.
Basically it sands things in a round pattern (hence “orbital”) – and much faster than by hand. It’s my new favourite tool – I’ve been sanding everything in sight.
(Note to self: You really are a sad, lonely man.)
